The Bold and the Beautiful may just be bringing in the mother of Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer) to the canvas, if speculation is correct.

According to Soap Opera Digest, the CBS soap and international hit series, is looking to cast a woman 50-60 years old, who must be Australian.

The casting call is for the character known as “Claire”, and is expected to be filled shortly, and to tape within a few weeks.  Brewer herself mentioned in an interview with SOD, that Ivy’s mother had somewhat of a fear of flying, so if the character were ever to appear she would have to find another way to get to California!

So, who would you suggest for the role of “Claire”?  Put your casting director hats on and give us your best suggestion!

Ivy’s mom ***IS*** named Claire – or at least, John called her that in a conversation with Eric. Of course, B&B conveniently forgot that Taylor’s surname was originally Ashford when they decided to change it to Hamilton, and that Jessica Forrester’s mom was originally said to be Hannah until Barbara Crampton came on as Maggie. Maybe they are getting it right this time?

Yes—she was played by Maitland Ward and her love interest was Dylan played by Dylan Neal.

Jessica is Ivy’s half sister, played by Maitland Ward on the show from 1994-1996. That was the first time John Forrester was ever mentioned. John and his wife were going through a rough patch in their marriage, so John sent his daughter, Jessica, to stay with her uncle Eric and aunt Stephanie in L.A. But they just sent her – they didn’t bother to call or anything. So Jessica showed up at the Forrester mansion and was shocked to find that Stephanie had no idea she was coming, or that Eric and Stephanie were divorced. (Eric was married to Sheila… Read more »

Connie Nielsen is 50 & Danish. She had short run last year on THE GOOD WIFE as Peter Florrick’s mistress. Don’t know if she could do an Australian accent. But, she definitely has a cosmopolitan allure & can speak 8 languages.

Three fine actresses from the Australian primetime soap, “A Place To Call Home” come to mind. First, there is lead Marta Dusseldorp (Sarah Adams) who possesses that tall, cool blonde, regal vibe…she is quite reminiscent of OLTL’s Jessica Tuck….There is also a set of striking brunettes: the vivacious Sara Wiseman who plays (Aunt) Carolyn Bligh and Jenni Baird who portrays the icy villainess (Aunt) Regina Standish. If the show is looking for a real battleaxe, there is also Noni Hazelhurst, who fills a killer role far older than her years as matriarch Elizabeth Bligh, but is also absolutely superb.

Karla Mosley Temporarily Replaces Mishael Morgan on The Young and the Restless

Soap favorite Karla Mosley (Ex-Maya, B&B and Christina, GL) has stepped in for Mishael Morgan and will air on upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless in the role of Amanda Sinclair.

As has been previously reported and brought to light by Morgan herself, she recently suffered an eye injury and had to undergo surgery.

In a joint statement, Y&R’s EP’s Anthony Morina and EP and co-head writer, Josh Griffith said of the temporary swap:  “We’re grateful that Karla Mosley, a seasoned actor and consummate professional, was able to step in to the role of Amanda during Mishael Morgan’s temporary absence. Mishael is a valuable member of the Y&R family and will be back on air soon to continue her journey as Amanda.”

Mosley spoke exclusively with Soap Opera Digest where she shared she spoke to Morgan before taking on the role: “It was great that I could talk with her and say thank you for leaving me such a wonderful path to follow. I also told her, ‘I’ll be happy when you’re healed and able to return.’”

In return, Mishael took to Twitter and said of Karla: “I am so grateful this beautiful and talented woman stepped in for me on such short notice and allowed me time to heal. I can’t wait to be back, but It comforts me to know that Amanda is in such great hands.”

Look for Karla to hit Genoa City on the upcoming April 26th episode of the CBS daytime drama series.
